Market Insights

“Growing demand for engineering plastics from high-performance industries driving the market growth”

Advancement in plastic technology made plastic more superior to its competitors like metals and ceramics, resulting in its increased role in industrial applications. The superior properties such as durability, flexibility, corrosion resistance, thermal resistance, and machinability made the engineering plastics one of the best materials to use in automotive, electrical & electronics, packaging, consumer appliances, and building & constructions, etc. among others.

The rapidly growing automotive sector, with its new technological trend such as electrical and hybrid vehicles, the market has high potential to grow in the coming future. Engineering plastics like acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyamide, and polyurethane are widely used in the manufacturing of the vehicle components. Further, to achieve the UN’s sustainable goals, many countries are charting regulations to reduce vehicle emission rates. This has increased the demand for engineering plastics at the global level thereby, positively impacting the global engineering plastic market.

Overall, the global engineering plastics market was US$ 80.46 Bn in 2018 and expected to reach US$ 142.99 Bn in 2027, growing with a CAGR of 6.7% from 2019 to 2027.
